Looking for an easy way to get around to as many of Old Town Monrovia's eateries as possible?
If so, the way to accomplish that task is coming up as the Kiwanis Club gears up for the third annual Taste of Old Town Monrovia food and wine festival.
The event, set for 5 to 8 p.m. Oct. 20, will feature around 30 food and beverage booths. Tickets are $50 in advance and $60 at the door.
"It's one of tose really fun things," said Pam Fitzpatrick, chair of the event. "It's something everyone looks forward to every year."
This year, Lily Wilson and the Dream will perform and news radio station KFWB, as well as the Los Angeles Kings and Galaxy, will have booths at the event. The Los Angeles Clippers has provided organizers with game tickets, Fitzpatrick said.
Everyone who buys a ticket to the Taste of Old Town will be entered in a raffle to win the tickets and sponsors of the event will be entered into a drawing for box seats.
Organizers hope to sell 800 tickets this year.
"The one cool thing is that Kiwanis' goal is to benefit youth," Fitzpatrick said. "So, proceeds go to benefit youth and really heavily towards the Santa Anita YMCA."
